re: Anyone here have a Weber Q 1200 or Q 2200? - nolaks on 6/21/16 at 10:33 am
I have a 1200 on the boat. I have a big spirit at the house. The one on the boat is good. It doesn't have what I'd call a precise temperature control, nor is it consistent throughout its cooking area (read as hot spots). For anything really fatty it likes to flame up because the distance between...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (1)

I schedule like that too now when I travel. you think it would take the fun out, but it actually keeps you moving. if you don't feel like sticking to the schedule, when you spot something really cool on your way to one destination, you just side track and go off schedule. However, being scheduled...

re: Who do you think is more intelligent? - nolaks on 6/8/16 at 9:31 am
Awe of success is different than admiration of intelligence. The CEO (BTW that title when self awarded from a sole proprietorship tends to lose some pizazz, but I digress). Inherent intelligence is both easily quantifiable and rare. However, success can be obtained in many forms. For example, yo...

I'm about to install an automatic gate opener at the front of my driveway. Its about 100ft maybe 120 with bends, from the nearest power source. Should I use hard wired or go with a solar panel? Anyone done one of these installs? Anything to watch out for?...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (4)
re: Austin Texas Trip Advice - nolaks on 5/19/16 at 8:31 am
Just did Austin last week. They have a bike share program that is great, $8 a day unlimited use, stations everywhere. You pay once for 24 hours, and then you can take a bike for a 30 min or less trip as many times as you want in 24 hours. The city has awesome bike lanes everywhere so you can easi...

bus, think I saw you in one shell Elmwood the other morning early deadlifting. BR, I'm not saying this to be funny. I'm being serious. if you try overhead, do it with a foam roller or a broom handle or a very light curl bar the fist few times. It is much harder than it looks. Even an unloaded...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (2)

yeah it was that machine, I was actually posting to say how inaccurate it was. I'm very cut, well defined 6 pack, veins protruding in arms, legs, and most of my abdomen, but by no means am I ready to walk into a body building comp tomorrow. ...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (0)

sorry to distract you from the poop thread, but thought I'd drop this here. Elmwood was doing a free "in body" machine analysis today. 160.7# BMI 23.1 % body fat 6.7 I think the % number is complete BS and told the guy, he said its usually pretty accurate. For comparison sake, based on the...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (3)

the risk free rate utilized is likely the one month t bill, and the spread is calculated from there based upon instruments with a similar timeline horizon to when he will retire. Mortality table is a GAM table, use 1987 if you want. ...
